A total population of one thousand one hundred students. Purposive sampling technique was used to select two public schools and was randomly assigned to the experimental and control groups. 200 students were involved in the study with 100 students in the experimental and 100 in the control intact group. Two research questions and two hypotheses guided the study. Twenty (20) multiple choice test questions having sections A and B were constructed on saponification by the researcher. The instrument had a reliability coefficient of r=0.88 using a test- retest method of estimating reliability. The data obtained were analyzed using mean and standard deviation for the research questions and ANCOVA were used for the hypotheses which were tested at 0.05 level of significance. Base on the findings it was recommended that science teachers with entrepreneurial skills be recruited and adequately funded by the government to promote entrepreneurship education.
